Junghans Worldtimer Chronograph Watch - Tradition and Innovation in One

Aug 07, 2010
Founded on "3 Rs", which stand for Respect, Responsibility and Reputation, the family-owned watch company Junghans has always demonstrated its ardent desire for innovations. It is eloquently proved by the brands Avantgarde collection. These watches immediately win the heart by their faultless precision, excellent comfort and futuristic design. The same features are inherent to the Worldtimer Chronograph watch, the latest addition to the line.

The new member of the Avantgarde collection offers a subtle balance between traditional and innovative elements of the design. The Worldtimer Chronograph is proposed with a classic rounded case. On the front side, it is shielded by a domed sapphire crystal with internal anti-glare treatment. The back side of the watch is also fitted with a sapphire crystal. This exhibition window opens to view the rear of the movement and the antenna. The water-resistance of the timepiece is down to 5 ATM.

The Junghans watch shows off a matt black dial, which successfully brings together analogue and digital displays. The groundbreaking design feature is represented by a round window of the hour display, integrated into the geometry of the analogue minute counter. An alternative to retrograde displays of mechanical timepieces, the separate silver-plated disc indicates the number of the subsequent hour.

The additional digital function of indicating weekday, date and calendar week turns the innovative Worldtimer Chronograph into an inimitable time manager. The excellent legibility of the LC display is ensured by the use of FSTN technology.

Alongside with the automatic reception of time signals for Europe (DCF 77), the USA (WWVB) and Japan (JJY 40/60), the timekeeper provides the option for setting a second-time zone: for the weekday display the user can choose between German, English or French. This horological marvel also offers the alarm, countdown and chronograph functions.

The Junghans Worldtimer Chronograph watch is mounted on a crocodile leather strap fitted with a stainless steel folding clasp.
